Large Cumbersome PDF files

Question

Some files that I export to PDF will be very large PDF files. These PDF files will open slowly, generating some objects one at a time. Has anyone had this problem? Is there a solution?

For anyone interested in this topic: We have plans for a few ways to reduce the size and increasing the poly-cleanliness of exported PDFs going forward after hearing this kind of feedback.

JimW - attention to this would be much appreciated. By ‘poly-cleanliness’ are you also referring to the SLVP Annotations —> PDF issues discussed over in THIS thread and also THIS post? Thanks.

Specifically discrepancies of the appearance of geometry in Vectorworks vs the direct PDF output. I think the cleanliness part also related to exactly what we output and not just visually, for instance there are situations where exporting to PDF creates a very heavy file because it includes many stacks of the same vertices sometimes, far more than would be needed to cleanly display per-layer. Sometimes these are what is ballooning the filesize and sometimes not.
